“needs to be more accessable to disabled people”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

My friend and I went to the Melbourne museum - and I was actually rather disappointed. There wasn't anything really exciting to feel - apart from a heap of rocks *which, lets face it are not very exciting* I would have liked braille descriptions - or at least an audio guide like a lot of museums have.

“Sweet Taxidermy”
Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

Stuff I liked: the extinct Tasmanian tiger, the taxidermed horse--Phar Lap. The staff was super friendly. Sad that the aboriginal section is closed for renovation.
If you go after 4:30 you can get in for free.

“Inspiring and very amusing visit”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

I always hated to visit museum because in my mind, it is a place of great horror and boring come together as one. However, after I visited Melbourne museum, my paradigm been changed and I love being in this place. It provides great information about living beings and science facts I never known. Not to mention the ambience is really impressive, it is very modern. The Museum is located next to iMax and Melbourne Royal Exhibition building. The museum is worth of visit and especially for students who can get free entrance by showing their student cards.
